The Mysterious Death of Netta Fornario is a chilling fictional account based on the real events of an unexplained and still controversial death.
On a bleak November day, Dr John Tyler arrives on Iona at the crisis of his life. Suicidally overwhelmed by his experience in the Field Ambulance Service during The Great War, Tyler has come to the Island determined either to make a new beginning or to end his life. He Books into Traighmor, the windswept guest house of widow Ruth Blacklock and her illusive young son Duncan.
During a stormy night of dreams and visions, he meets fellow guest Netta Fornario, an Italian - English occultist and practicing Golden Dawn magician. Tyler is unable to resist the beautiful and extraordinary Netta or the equally intriguing Mrs Blacklock and, as Netta's health and sanity appear to deteriorate, he is drawn into a world of magic, revenge and terrible secrets, that lead to love, tragedy and final redemption.
A stylish production of a newly commissioned script, using exciting imaging techniques to create a stunning visual landscape, this marks the first collaboration between two Highland-based theatre makers, the long-established Mull Theatre and one of Scotland’s most exciting new creative companies, Wildbird.
